Kushti Match: Sardarji vs. Local Wrestler

Videos by Deepak Ansuia Prasad

This is the final sequence of the sardarji (turbaned) sikh wrestler fighting with a local wrestler from palwal, in the sequence the hand of the opponent of the sardarji wrestler got broken from joint. pls do not watch if you feel uncomfortable. The match had to be stopped , as I was closest to the wrestler and saw the hand of the wrestler being twisted, it was sadistic, I stopped filming then and helped to stop the bout. The bout was declared un decided and consolation money were given to them. The event had not medical facilities, as usual, and the wrestler has to depend on himself for the treatment. He wrapped his hand in a makeshift cloth bandage and seen leaving the venue in much pain.
